APNs can facilitate the ability to practice both the art and science of nursing and reduce the chasm between theory and practice by using nursing theory as a foundation. According to Chism, nursing theory is made up of ideas brought together by associated expressions that characterize, clarify, and foretell phenomenon that are in accordance with nursing viewpoints (Chism, 2013). Nursing theory helps to identify what should shape the foundation of practice by clearly describing nursing. It is essential the APN use nursing theory in evidence-based practice, to provide better patient care, improve communication between nurses, and as a guide for nursing research and education. In addition, because the main champion of nursing, caring, cannot be quantified, it is crucial to have a theory to examine and spell out what the APN does.

The Roles and Ways of Knowing for a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner Through the practice of scholarship, theories, models and conceptual frameworks the Advanced Practice Nurse integrates clinical knowledge into evidence based practice. Healthcare reform has created a need for the advanced educated nurse at the Bachelor through Doctorate degree level. The nurse practitioner has become the norm in healthcare settings and is found in every specialty along the lifespan. Educational and clinical requirements defined by the APN Consensus Statement sets the standard for entry into clinical practice. According to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing’s Position Statement on Defining Scholarship for the Discipline of Nursing (1999), the APN/DNP’s role of scholarship serves to benefit nursing research, teaching, education, and the practice of nursing itself.

This evaluation will engage with reflections on practise in my own experience, and vignettes are offered as a means to facilitate the discussion about the complex nature of supportive and palliative (S&PC) care and the disparities found between theory and practice. First person pronouns shall be used so as not to disguise my personal evaluation (Webb, 1992). This essay shall particularly focus on the role of the individual in SP&C in comparison to the priorities of organisations, nurses and patients- specifically asking if courage is a vital but under acknowledged part of optimum supportive and palliative care. This discussion on courage in SP&C will lead to recommendations for the development of supportive and palliative care. Supportive and Palliative Care is an evolving discipline (Craft et al, 2010; Clarke, 2007) that originated with nurses and nursing (Clarke, 2007)and has now become a medical speciality in its own right (Capewell, et al., 2006).
This paper will provide understanding of the theory of nursing, key concepts of the theory of comfort, and how these concepts and theories are relatable to current nursing leadership. The Importance of Nursing Theory Nursing theory is a key component of effective nursing. Nursing theory establishes principles, rationales, and helps enhance overall knowledge of nursing (Davidson, 2012). The common question that arises in nursing school is “Why do we need to learn nursing theories?”. Although it may seem cumbersome to learn, having a firm understanding and knowledge of nursing theory will one day allow the student nurse to develop a nursing theory of their own.
Goals need to be measurable, attainable, client centred, realistic, outcome written and short. When planning care evidence based research should be used to support the planning process.

(Holland et al, 2008) When evaluating the care given a number of questions must be considered. Was appropriate data collected?, Were appropriate problems
